Residency Determination Dates
At San José State University, the residence determination dates are:
Fall - September 20
Spring - January 25
Summer - June 1
The Office of General Counsel can either decide the appeal or send the matter back to the campus for further review.
Students incorrectly classified as residents or incorrectly granted an exception from nonresident tuition are subject to reclassification as nonresidents and payment of nonresident tuition in arrears. If incorrect classification results from false or concealed facts, the student is subject to discipline pursuant to Section 41301 of Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations.
Resident students who become nonresidents, or who no longer meet the criteria for an exception, must immediately notify the Registrar's Office.
Changes may have been made in the rate of nonresident tuition and in the statutes and regulations governing residence for tuition purposes in California between the time this information is published and the relevant residence determination date. Students are urged to review the statutes and regulations stated above.
